Comments about RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster - 0.67 oz:
I use only Paula's Choice skincare products, and have tried nearly everything at least once, with varying degrees of results. Although I don't have enlarged pores so I can't speak to that issue, this booster has made some of the most outstanding improvement to my blotchy, uneven skin tone yet. Even my husband, who never comments on my skin has noticed how smooth and nice my complexion is looking since beginning to use it. I mix about 3 drops both morning and night into my moisturizer. Thanks Paula!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Burns my face
from Palo Alto, CA
About Me Minimalist
It burns immediately upon application and even when I washed it off immediately, left my skin inflamed with red patches, roughness, flakes, and took almost a month to recover. I tried again by mixing a tiny amount in my moisturizer and got the same reaction, albeit more mild. After a few tries, I just gave up.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

good only for nose pores, irritating, caused breakouts
from Canada eh!
I used it daily on my whole face for 21 days. Irritated my skin and caused breakouts. For some reason though, it is good for keeping my nose pores smaller. Now, I use it twice daily but only on my nose.

Did not see any change
from san francisco,ca
About Me Beauty Expert
I was hoping to see some change given the hype and the price of this product, I used it religiously each day, twce, once in the morning and once in the night. I ran out of product pretty fast given that it has only 0.67fl oz which is way less than the standard 1 oz quantity.

Steady use produces results
from Ottawa, ON
About Me Beauty Conscious
I use this booster once a day. Enlarged pores aren't a big problem for me thanks to the BHA exfoliant but I did notice that the pores on my nose are indeed a little smaller. The biggest change I noticed is with my "smile wrinkles" between my eyebrows and next to my mouth are less visible. Unlike the RESIST Skin Firming Line Minimizer which I found minimally effective, this booster will remain in my skincare routine.
Makes pores smaller
from Madison Wi
I have rosacea and acne prone skin. At age 59 the pores on my nose have enlarged. Using the niacinamide booster has helped make them less visible. I seem to be having less breakouts too.

My first booster, love it
I add som drops to my serum or cream, at least once a day. Feels like water. But expensive.

Wanted to Love This Product
from USA, Indiana
I had high hopes for this product with all the great reviews but I have used this for over two month twice daily and have not seen any improvement in my skin.

I have been using this product for around 2 months, and feel ready to comment on its efficacy.I mix 3 drops in with my BHA liquid every morning. Initially I used it AM/PM but found it made me break out in small acne-like pimples, so reduced frequency and am now having no problems.I have always had oily skin with a tendency for blackheads/clogged pores on and around my nose. BHA has helped a lot (I have been using PC skincare for almost 10 years) but my pores have always been an issue - still filling up with "gunk" and needing manual extraction every few weeks.Since using this product I have found that my pores no longer need manual extraction! It's not that my skin is less oily, but my pores seem to do their job better: they don't clog as easily as before.In terms of pore size/ skin smoothness I would say there has been a subtle but noticeable improvement.All in all I am very impressed with this product and plan to continue to use it daily.
Definitely works for pores
I have been using this almost daily for 3 plus months and I have to say, my pores have been noticeably reduced. I have real oily skin and it's still oily but the condition of it has improved by using this stuff. It takes some time though. You may notice subtle changes at first but after 3 months I can confidently say that I'll continue with this product for the long haul. It's lightweight and non greasy. The consistency is like water so it's a bit hard to apply but I just drop a few drops in my palms and rub it in before applying moisturizer. I apply it once at night only. Great stuff, never thought anything could help my gaping pores.
